Regular Queen. We've added a 3-inch foam topper to our mattress, otherwise using the original mattress. BTW what year and model do you have?

Ours had a regular queen Sealy posturpaedic (sp?) . 10 inchs thick and really heavy. That was the hard part Ö.getting it out!

We bought a cool gel foam type mattress (sorry can't remember which brand and not at MH) and it is wonderful.

Our original mattress was very light and thin. We switched it out with the one in our old rig within minutes of taking possession. It is 80 x 60 x 12 inches. It's taller, but I like that. I hope this helps.

We loved the queen Sleep Number mattress we had in our house and it fit nicely in our Alpine Coach when we became fulltimers. I've heard they make ones especially for RVs, but our "household" one works fine.

We also have a Sleep Number bed in the coach, the RV version. Difference is supposedly due to federal flammability restrictions on materials used in automotive applications, not functional differences.
